as pentagon chief will stop at nothing. they're out there beating the bushes right now for anything that will slow the process of his confirmation, anything that will give them more time to find something they can build enough on to bring the man down. question. who are they trying to bring down? is it president obama's pick for secretary of defense? or is it the man the american people have chosen? is it about a confirmation or a desperate push to undermine the president's second term? listen to those attacking senator hagel, and you hear the yelps of pain this motley crew of neocons and right-wingers from the sun belt feel even though from the american people's choice of last november. what they hate, despise really, is the fact now in the history books that the american people in great numbers reject their war-like jingoistic notions of what america stands for. their problem is not with obama's choice for a cabinet appointment. their problem is with america's choice of who it wants to be president, who it wants deciding what we should be doing in this world. obama works for peace

an opportunity to cut the pentagon like this. we've had fat in the pentagon for 30 years. nobody's done a damn thing about it. if there's a compromise on sequester, some good things will happen because there are some people that are going to get hurt if we go over the cliff, but we have an opportunity here to cut the most bloated agency in all of government and serious cutting, and i think we ought to take it. >> we could take $45 billion this year out of the military budget. you're okay with that? >> yes, i am. and i think we can do that and we can make it work. you know there, have been tons of programs in the pentagon that the pentagon never wanted. that congresspeople have put in there. >> sure. howard dean, great to have you with us. always. >> thanks. >> appreciate it. wayne lapierre might be one of the greatest hucksters of all time. i'll show you what's behind his paranoia campaign next. tea party backers show a perverse sense of humor by creating a hillary clinton sex tape. david corn broke the story. he joins us on the panel tonight. stay with us. ♪ you know my heart burns for you.

as combat-related. by the way, jon, we should mention we just got a statement from the pentagon just moments ago. george little. and i want to read a part of this. he says the department of defense is committed to highest care of those in our military family. survivors of the incident at fort hood are eligible for the same medical benefits as all servicemembers. the department of defense is also committed to the integrity of the ongoing court-martial proceedings of major nidal hasan and will not further characterize the incident at that time. all of us remember here that day 13 people died and 32 were wounded. munley very likely saved more lives. we'll keep you posted as this develops. jon: she took three bullets in the process. she is really a hero as you said. so, i don't know, so sad and bitterly ironic, three years ago she is sitting with the first lady at the state of the union and this year she is out of a job. >> reporter: out of a job. we'll keep watching. jon: heather, thank you. jenna: a stalled cruise ship is being towed to shore. thousands are stuck on board with very little powe
are desperate to solve this problem. >> if you had a choice of saving the pentagon or playing golf with tiger, what would you do? >> i'd play golf with tiger. but that's two guys talking here. i don't begrudge the president two days off. he's earned that. >> he needs it. >> and the congress isn't there for nine days either. my point s neither side seems to view this as urgently as the american public. >> oh, no. i wasn't doing that as a subtle dig. i would golf with tiger and figure out a way to save the pentagon. >> maybe while you're golfing with tiger. maybe tiger had some ideas. i don't know. >> long time between holes on that course. >> good things happen when presidents are golfing with famous people. back in 1997 bill clinton got a phone call while he was golfing with michael jordan in vegas. he got the horrible news that -- true stroory. i get to say this because i'm a former politician. he got the news that if he did nothing, the budget was going to balance itself alone without any of his help. so he quit, rushed to the airport and came back saying, we have to do something fast so i
news. it is bad news on the domestic side and on the pentagon side. and it's not to be taken lightly on the domestic side. every single program that people count on is going to be cut across the board, 13%. >> that's social security. >> that's medicare. >> that's medicaid. >> that's headstart. >> that's -- it's -- it is so bad that the congressional budget office said: this sequester will take us not right away but probably by the end of the year from recovery into recession. back into recession. so this thing, here you go, you do this. the economy is going to tank. i was in the briefing room friday at the whitehouse when secretary ray lahood came in secretary of transportation, ray lahood, talking about just one other aspect of that, of the sequester that we can expect and that is in air travel. the secretary mentioned they have no flexibility in this. they have to cut so much and the only wake they can cut with so many employees they've got is to make -- is to require some of them to take a furlough. most of their employees are air traffic controllers.
thing is, running the pentagon is a hard job. people failed at it before. the largest bureaucracy we have in the government, one of the largest workforces in the world. i mean, it's a hugely complicated thing to do administratively, logistically, politically. strong centers of power in that building, right? i have no idea whether chuck hagel is up to it, nor does anyone. none of that has been lit gaited at all. he talked to al jazeera once, gave speeches to. the actual job the guy is going to do, i don't know if i have a dog in the fight. do i care if chuck hagel is running the pentagon? as far as i can tell, no one has done much in congress to sort of sort that out. >> and the one thing that job, is a policymaker. that is not the person who decides whether we go to war but takes the orders from the white house about how to implement it. that is not the person who decides what our relationship is with any other foreign country. those issues belong in other jobs. that's what they made the whole hearing about. >> no, absolutely. and even their fixation on benghazi is located in state.
rather have the republican do these kind of cuts to the pentagon than a democrat? >> boy, i don't think that was his -- he worked for something that was in the national security space, chuck hagel did, for some period of time. i think he built a relationship with the president. he is a vietnam veteran, a decorated vietnam veteran at that, and that's why the president selected him. the problem was, the senate now and certainly senator reed can talk to him better than i can, having difficulty both sides of the aisle, to see if he's ready and able to lead the pentagon. >> i think mike is exactly right about why he was chosen, experience and at a combat veteran, as a business leader and the second deputy head of the v.a. in the reagan administration and he's got the confidence of the president. i don't think this was designed to provoke a fight. i think in fact what's happened is very unusual, unprecedented review, asking for speeches, going back five years, asking for all sorts of material we've never requested of confirmation before. we're confident that we'll get the confirmation conclud
about who's going to head the pentagon. and let me tell you this, ryan, tell you how blatantly inconsistent and unprecedented this is. he said in 2005 that presidential nominees shouldn't be filibustered. "i think the president is entitled to an up or down that is a simple majority. voter nominations both to his cabinet and to the executive branch and, also, to the judiciary. 2005 up or down vote, nominees for cabinet and judiciary and executive branch. now, he's leading a filibuster, ryan. >> yeah, that easter's exactly . if the republicans want to pick who the cabinet secretaries are, then they have to elect a president. they didn't win the presidential election, therefore, they -- i guess they should be thankful he's picking a republican. john mccain said earlier this is partly about benghazi but it's also about the simple fact that they don't like chuck hagel. they said they don't like him. mccain said you can disagree without being disagreeable and ha hagel is disz agreeable. >> they don't like him, but he was a republican senator. and they've smeared him. you would think
in one of his farewell acts again as defense secretary yesterday announced a new medal for the pentagon. and this is a medal for people who are piloting drones. it is a new combat medal for those who are not actually engaged in combat. i should have done this before you came in. it is called the most -- no, the distinguished warfare medal. which will provide recognition for those who have a direct impact on combat operations but are not involved in combat. so the people sit down like at c.i.a. headquarters or in the pentagon with the joystick, killing targets overseas, qualify for a medal of honor. >> really surreal world. >> bill: it is isn't it? >> the air force has these bases in colorado are like a field of trailers or container -- boxes. and these guys, they have normal lives with wives and kids at home and they drive in the office and get in one of the bunkers, sit behind a computer and spy on them and sometimes kill people in the tribal areas of pakistan or afghanistan. it is a really bizarre situation. >> bill: then go home and barbecue chicken for the kids. >> there is a situat
at this time we honor american service members killed in action, but this week the pentagon did not release any names of u.s. service members killed in afghanistan or iraq. that's the first time that's happened since july 2011. overnight however there was a tragic reminder that the horrors of war echo far beyond the battlefield. navy s.e.a.l. chris kyle whose best-telling book "american sniper" details four tours in iraq was killed yesterday at a gun range in texas. the shooter believed to be a former marine whom kyle was counseling through a struggle with ptsd. in iraq kyle was awarded two silver stars and five bronze stars for bravery. we honor his service. and that is all for us today. thanks for sharing part of your sunday with us. check out "world news with david muir" tonight, and i'll see you tomorrow on "gma." >> in the news super bowl sunday is finally here as 49er fans and police get ready for the big game. and some cajun flavor for fans in new orleans. we will have a live report from abc7 news reporter katie marzullo from outside the super bowl. >> partly cloudy skies. temperatures n

the pentagon and military posts have strong seasoned leadership teams. regardless of having the secretary or not having one is a portent concern. -- a point of concern. you have a good strong team that will be able to manage through this process. they have seen this coming. as you would expect the military to do, they are prepared. host: new hampshire, and the pennant caller -- caller: morning and thank you. i am so tired of the irresponsibility of the republicans. the chuck hagel thing is preposterous. how does it serve the nation to delay the president's choice? it is the first time in history that a filibuster has been used against a cabinet the sequester is the height of irresponsibility. why risk a potential double dip recession just so you can score political points? finally, you criticized the president for being out of washington and yet, -- that was and finally -- hear you are supporting a filibuster and finally, though you partly answer the question or just now, what your district and tails are large installations, i assume, other than fort campbell in your district. my brother
chief pentagon correspondent jim maiklaszewski joins us now. what do we know? >> it's a tragic story in so many ways. this marine corps reservist, a 25-year-old by the name of eddie ray routh, is in custody facing two capital murder charges in the deaths of that former navy s.e.a.l. sniper, chris kyle, and a friend. but the police still cannot pinpoint a motive. now, friends say that it appeared that routh was suffering ptsd, post-traumatic stress, from his service in iraq, and kyle has a record of working directly with ptsd victims from the wars in iraq and afghanistan, and trying to help them. now, according to reports, this was the first time that kyle and his friend had ever met with routh and they were at a gun range about 50 miles outside of ft. worth saturday when suddenly without warning, routh allegedly pulled a hand gun and shot and killed both of the other men at point-blank range. he's in custody and there is reports that he had to be tasered in his cell overnight for some kind of disruption there in the texas jail, but the search is on for a motive. and i can tell you th
to some of the employees, civilian employees of the pentagon and some other places. the 85 billion in cuts is through the rest of the fiscal year through september 30th and we're not even talking a full year. it's 50/50 between the defense cuts and the discretionary am doestic spending cuts and the warnings that we're hearing from experts on national security are very severe and vehement. they have told us that this will be a very significant damage. >> let's put the list up here, alex. the white house put out this fact sheet yesterday on the most damaging effects of the cuts that are supposed to go into effect march 1st. 17,000 education jobs at risk. 70,000 kids being kicked off head start. nearly 400,000 mentally ill patients not receiving health care and small business loan guarantees being cut up to $540 million, roughly. the white house did not mention the massive military cuts. what was the strategy there? >> well, look. i think that for the white house, the strategy here is to emphasize that basically every american would be impacted in some way. if you emphasize defense cuts and i
in an area not known for earthquakes. now the cia and pentagon are trying to learn much, much more about what happened in that test. want to bring in our pentagon correspondent, barbara starr. what have we learned from this? tell us what happened. >> reporter: well, you know, as you said, right now the intelligence community, the military, has to figure out what they know, what they suspect happened. think of this as csi north korea but not being able to go to the scene of the crime. what they're looking at is that seismic activity and trying to work their way backwards as to what happened. they believe now that this was, of course, an underground nuclear test, possibly several kilotons. but they need to get better analysis, they need to get air sampling, see what is now released into the atmosphere, and try and assess from all of that what happened. once they know that, the next set of questions, the next part of the investigation, how did north korea pull it off? where did they get help? did they get help? did they have the technology, the engineering expertise, fabrication to really do the

in discretionary. we could actually clean all the waste out of the pentagon which is well over $100 billion a year. it still doesn't solve our problem. we cannot solve our problem unless we change medicare to save it and put a competitive model into our health care system that will allocate that scarce resource. it's really interesting. just yesterday the cms has finished going through all this bidding on durable medical equipment. and the statement coming from cms, for the first time, is hey, we just figured out competition works. about a 41% savings on durable medical equipment not just for the federal government but for the seniors who are going to be doing their co-pay. so competition works. and if it will work -- it works in this area, health care will work in the rest. we've just got to have a little pain. that happened to me as a child frequently with a popular switch. >> okay. well, there you go. >> there's a bumper sticker for 2014. >> chuck, good morning. senator, good morning. chuck, quick question for you. what are the odds you place on sequester going through and two, a government shu
